World Number PGA player Tiger Woods announced that he is eyeing the Omega Dubai Desert Classic title he won in 2008. Woods missed last year’s tournament due to a knee injury that required surgery. Tournament organizers disclosed that Woods is participating in this leg of the European Tour to regain the title he won in 2006 and 2008. The Dubai Classic is scheduled on February 10 to 13 next year. Woods has stayed in the top five since he started playing in the Dubai leg in 2001.
Struggling all year, Woods still managed to stay at number one spot despite not winning any major title this season. In the last British Open Championship at St. Andrews, Woods finished tied at 23rd place. Bad weather conditions may have been a factor to his dismal performance but Woods had some serious putting problems too.
With the recent results of the Greenbrier Classic, Jeff Overton may push Woods out of the U.S. lineup for the Ryder Cup tournament.
PGA and sports fans are eager to see Tiger Woods get back to his dominating ways. It will be good for the sport and good for Woods himself just to soften the impact of the personal problems he has faced in the last several months.
